Ford Aston is known for many things. Being an emotionless, messed up bastard, a freakishly smart social outcast, and a cold, domineering master who keeps "pets" instead of girlfriends.
And after Rook broke his heart, he plans to keep it that way.
Ashleigh is known for nothing, and that's exactly what she's got going for her. She's broke, stranded in the mountains with a three month old baby, and Ford Aston is screwing with her head.
And she plans to mess with his right back.
It's a coy game at first, filled with flirting, and innuendo--but Ford soon realizes something is not quite right with Ashleigh. In fact, something is seriously, seriously wrong and the closer they get to their final destination, the closer Ford gets to the truth.
One night of devastation, self-loathing, and emptiness turns into the best thing that ever happened to Ford Aston. But one day of in-your-face reality threatens Ashleigh's whole existence.

I will tell you now, I loved the brilliant Ford in the Rook and Ronin series, and loved SLACK, but now… I am truly in love with Ford! I saw a completely different side to him on this journey and he simply has my heart! I love his intelligent mind, his manipulative side and the emotions that he goes through, although he believes that he cannot feel. Yep… Love him lots and I'm so glad he found his 'Team'!!
Ford changed a lot as a person throughout this story. He started all bitter, cold and moody, as he was pining over his broken relationship with Rook. When his bronco breaks down, Ashleigh and her baby come into the story and slowly she manages to break down his walls, piece by piece. Ashleigh is not like anyone who he's met before and she challenges him constantly. She has her own issues that she is trying to work through and Ford won't push her, but he soon realises he wants Ashleigh for himself.
Ford says from the start that he does not do babies, but soon Ford realises fu**ing mothers (as Ford calls them) are good at manipulation!! And baby Kate, somehow, worms her way into his heart. I can see him being a good father and was so happy that he found his own team. Watching him take the girls to the shops and buying things for Kate was so sweet… he was picking things out and I just swooned!!
So if that is not enough to melt you, date night certainly will! I could go into details, but you MUST read it for yourself, it was beautiful, romantic and sizzling hot!! I just knew these two were meant to be!!
I love the way J.A. Huss wove this story. The way the relationship between Ford and Ash grew slowly was beautiful. We saw how well he can treat women and how a small baby can grab hold of your heart and not let go. But as usual, J.A. Huss throws a twist into the plot that you don't see coming… I loved how Fords story was wrapped up, and now I'm keen to read Spence's stories!!
